Sparkle and Pearls



I have always heard that every lady should have a nice string of pearls. They seem to be the iconic fashion accessory. And I believe this notion to be true in the crafting world! It seems like every card I create and/or admire has pearls on it! And today's card is no different.

The designer paper is a beautiful print from K & Co. I used my craft knife to cut around some of the petals and leaves and then popped them up with dimensional foam. The bow is a "faux bow" I created and glued to the base. And peeking out below you see one pearl! Why go overboard with too much of a good thing, right?

Continued prayers to all of those dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Irene this week. There are millions of prayers all over the world going up for you!

Be sure to visit Our Daily Bread Designs tomorrow as they will be kicking off a new month! And that means new stamps, a blog hop and PRIZES! Blessings to all...

Pretty, pretty!!

I have 2 sets of pearls - triple strands. One came from hubby's grandmother's house after she died and my MIL gave me her set she had gotten from her ex (hubby's dad). I don't find much opportunity to wear them. Maybe I should just wear them with a t-shirt or whatever anyway. LOL They're both the same color - which is a yellowish color - so don't quite go with anything.
